Christmas in Trinidad would not be complete without a glass of Ponche-de-Creme. This cocktail is the Caribbean sister to Eggnog and homemade versions are known for being especially potent when it comes to how generous they are with the Rum. Trinidad Ponche-de-Creme is a smooth creamy spicy and spiked drink that is an unmistakable part of the December Holiday season. Make this recipe for your next seasonal holiday lime, and please remember to be safe and choose a designated driver.
